Solar thermal hot water systems have been around for some time now. They are now a tried and tested technology, but to get the best out of your solar thermal system there are some key points to remember:


Many owners tell us that they had no idea that solar thermal panels need servicing. Just like your car, servicing on a regular basis is essential. There are components within a system such as the pump and valves that must be kept in good working order. Regular servicing minimises your running costs and maximises the amount of renewable heat produced and of course maximises the life span of the system. 



Energie Solutions experienced, Solar Thermal engineers are able to service both Flat plate and Evacuated tube collect or Solar Thermal systems even if it was not originally installed by us. 

Our extensive client base consists of a wide range of property types and sizes including private homeowners, landlords, commercial properties and social housing associations, facility and estate management companies.



As a general rule of thumb a standard solar thermal service should include:

- a visual inspection of pipework, insulation, collectors and sensors

- check of the systems hydraulic pressure

- check the level and quality of the systems antifreeze

- check the flow rate

- test of pressure relief valve

amongst several other checks to ensure that the systems is performing correctly.


what is the fluid in the system?


One of the most important aspects of your solar thermal system is the heat transfer fluid. You will need to replace the fluid every 5 years to ensure that the pH and antifreeze-protection levels are correct. Failure to do this can have serious costly consequences. The solar transfer fluid should NEVER simply be topped but the system should be flushed out, cleaned and then flushed with the new transfer fluid. 

Energie Solutions have  many satisfied Solar Thermal customers, many of which have signed up to our SOLAR THERMAL MAINTENANCE PLAN. For further information of this please call 01206 396901 or visit our website.
